Implementation of rural generalist programme
Friday 21 December is a red-letter day for the Rural Generalist (RG) movement as the Regional Services Minister released the comprehensive blueprint for implementation of a National Rural Generalist Pathway.
Some of the key elements of the proposal are:
A definition of RG Medicine consistent with the Cairns Consensus
Professional recognition to be aligned to training consistent with the FACRRM model
Nationally supported, dedicated RG training from prevocational years through to Fellowship
Protected title for RGs within the specialty of General Practice and consistent with the agreed definition
Options for supporting and remunerating RG practitioners
I wonder if someone in Government is listening in NZ?
